Ford Motor Company (“Ford”) has recalled 48,443 model year 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty Trucks equipped with 6.2L engines and six-speed automatic transmissions. These transmissions may have a damaged park rod actuating plate that can result in unexpected vehicle movement even though the transmission has been shifted to ‘Park.’ As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 102, “Transmission Shift Lever Sequence/Starter Interlock/Transmission Braking Effect”, and number 114, “Theft Protection.”
According to the NHTSA, unexpected vehicle movement such as a vehicle rollaway can increase the risk of a crash.
